The challenge of achieving consistent color
In practice, many post production pipelines currently use ACES in conjunction with OpenColorIO. OCIO is an open standard for color management which aims to address the needs of VFX and animation pipelines and supports a variety of formats, including ACES encoded files.
OCIO offers a consistent experience and pipeline-ability, and is supported by commercial software including Foundry’s Nuke, Katana and Mari. Despite the challenges, the advantages are becoming increasingly apparent and adoption of ACES is growing as professionals and more shows become fully comfortable and its relevance cannot be ignored.
